Lunarline is fully committed in supporting our returning Veterans and Wounded Warriors. Our mission is to bridge the gap for our returning veterans and wounded warriors between military service and a career as a cyber-warrior. We will transition their skills from one battlefield to another and provide a foundation for continued service to country and support to themselves and their families with dignity and integrity.
Lunarline is a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions and certified security training to all US Federal Government (Civilian, DoD, and IC), as well as to customers in selected commercial markets. As a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), its executives and employees have had first-hand experience in transitioning from warriors to cyber warriors. The not-for-profit W2CW™ program is a division of Lunarline’s School of Cybersecurity (SCS). All of the programs instructors and mentors have extensive cybersecurity experience and many are veterans.
As Service-Disabled Veterans, we here at Lunarline are fully committed to this project, having gone through this particular transition ourselves. We know personally how important it is to use the very same values instilled in us through our experience with the Armed Services in our careers after returning home. Those values of honor, integrity, commitment, teamwork, and excellence are all used every day working in cybersecurity.
– Waylon Krush, Co-Founder, President, and CEO of Lunarline, Inc.

W2CW™ staff selects students for the program based on their application date, computer skills, keen interest in information security, military experience and geographic proximity to interested employers.
A Warrior is a Veteran of military service.
Warrior to Cyber Warrior™ is a unique training/ career placement program because it matches each student with a prospective information security employer when training begins. The prospective employer signs a W2CW™ Letter of Commitment, which is basically a Memo of Understanding agreeing to hire the W2CW™ student as an intern with the promise of a job upon graduation if the internship is mutually satisfactory.
W2CW™ staff reach out to corporations and agencies at the local, state and federal level to ascertain their Information Security needs. In many cases, prospective employers have a need for additional personnel in this area. W2CW™ staff then work with the Chief of Information Security/Cyber Security, HR and Veterans hiring within the entity to secure a written Letter of Commitment to hire a warrior student.
Information flows two ways. An information packet (for example, Hiring America’s Best produced by Give an Hour and National Organization on Disability) about employing Wounded Warriors and Veteran is given to each prospective employers. In return, employers fill out a questionnaire about their competencies as potential employers.
W2CW™ would like to give special recognition and thanks to the following organizations for their support.
